Game Ready Med4 Elite: Does It Really Work?
The recovery process after surgery or an injury can take a while, be painful, and sometimes slow you down. Fortunately, there are numerous options to help speed up your recovery process with today’s medical technology while increasing comfortability and functionality. The Game Ready Med4 Elite is a multi-modality therapy system designed to help reduce pain, swelling, and recovery time for patients post-surgery or post-injury.
However, can one piece of technology be powerful enough to work for patients looking to improve the healing process? The Game Ready Med4 Elite is a breakthrough in recovery therapy that combines iceless cold, controllable heat, contrast, and compression therapies in a way that hasn’t been done before. So how does this unique recovery therapy work, and is it right for you? Below, we’ll provide a breakdown of the Game Ready Med4 Elite, how it works, and what it really does.
What is the Game Ready Med4 Elite?
The GameReady Med4 Elite is a multi-modality healing therapy system that delivers comprehensive, flexible, streamlined, and proven recovery treatment for patients recovering from injuries, surgeries, or at different stages of rehabilitation. The Med4 Elite provides patients with a powerful treatment option for decreasing pain and swelling, reducing muscle and joint stiffness, and increasing blood flow to the treatment area.
The system combines cryotherapy, thermotherapy, rapid contract therapy, and intermittent pneumatic compression therapy all in one system. The design of this system allows for optimal and efficient treatment and healing outcomes, allowing the treatment to be targeted to specific and sometimes multiple areas at once.
How Does the Game Ready Med4 Elite Work?
The Med4 Elite provides patients with a comprehensive, flexible, and convenient treatment option to meet their specific needs. The GameReady Med4 Elite is a 30-minute process that involves placing a wrap around the affected areas and programming the Med4 Elite to provide the appropriate treatment for the patient’s needs.
The innovative touchscreen allows patients to receive multiple treatment options in one session to get a customized recovery treatment for optimal healing. The device is also compatible with a wide array of wraps for various body areas for optimized coverage, contact, and comfort.
While the Med4 Elite combines four different therapeutic modalities in one system, patients don’t have to receive all four therapies. The Med4 Elite provides patients with a customized recovery therapy treatment each session for the best healing results possible.
Iceless Cold Compression
Cold compression therapy is one of the most effective ways for patients to reduce pain and heal faster. Cold therapy works by constricting the blood vessels, which reduces swelling and inflammation to minimize pain. Cold compression therapy can also help reduce muscle spasms and bruising in the treated area.
The Med4 Elite’s iceless cold compression gets down to 38 degrees Fahrenheit and creates its own deep-penetrating cold for easy, comfortable cryotherapy.
Controlled Heat Compression
While cold compression therapy restricts blood flow, heat compression therapy stimulates blood circulation to the treatment area. This allows the blood to bring nutrients to the site to promote healing. Heat compression also helps remove lactic acid buildup from overworked muscles, which helps relieve stiffness.
The controlled heating from the Med4 Elite during thermotherapy can be used alone during the entire treatment or combined with the cold for contrast therapy. The use of contrast therapy helps significantly decrease inflammation and create better circulation around areas of injuries and chronic pain for more effective healing. One of the benefits of the Med4 Elite is its ability to provide the right combination of therapies in one session, such as hot and cold therapy, to give patients the best recovery treatment possible.
Rapid contract therapy uses hot and cold modalities in rapidly alternating cycles to provide patients with improved circulation, enhanced blood flow, and reduced inflammation. The use of quickly alternating between hot and cold modalities using the Med4 Elite provides patients with the appropriate treatment depending on the healing stage they’re in.
In addition to increased healing and decreased pain from rapid contrast therapy, it can also aid in an increased range of motion, muscle stiffness and soreness, reducing nerve sensitivity, and increased energy and alertness.
The GameReady Med4 Elite technology is capable of a quick changeover rate from hot to cold, so more efficient and effective healing during each treatment session.
During active compression therapy, the Med4 Elite delivers adjustable, intermittent pneumatic compression to mimic natural muscle contractions to pump swelling away from the injured area, stimulate blood flow, and enhance the effects of cold therapy.
IPC therapy can also help prevent blood clots from forming in the deep leg veins. People who are at risk for deep vein thrombosis can significantly benefit from using the IPC therapy function of the Med4 Elite. Patients recovering from recent surgeries, injuries, or strokes can use active compression to reduce their risk of deep vein thrombosis and promote a faster recovery.
